Hullo to all in Atuldom

Last year on this date, post our Avadh Lalji had asked in the comments “I wonder whether it is a deliberate omission on your part to exclude many of her successful films she has done with the Millennium Star as also his name from the list of her leading co-stars?”

My answer to this was “You are right about not mentioning Amitabh. Because that is my normal habit. Posting a common song also. And I forgot to put in the disclaimer… Errors and omission to be excused.”

This year too I am attempting a similar post today (10 october 2018). A Rekha song with another superstar/ actor of those times. Two movies of Rekha with this smart, handsome, he-man (so many adjectives) released in 1973. They have co-starred in about twelve movies in the 70s to the late 80s out of which they made a pair in six. Their pairing was as good, eye- soothing and well received as say Amitabh- Rekha or Jeetendra- Rekha or Vinod Mehra- Rekha. They came together after a gap of 29 years this year when Rekha made an appearance in a song that plays with the end credits of the movie. The song paid a salute to all things that this He-Man actor is known for and I went to see the movie for old times’ sake. Review about that on a later date.

Today’s song is from the 1984 released “Jhootha Sach” which was produced by A.G. Nadiadwala and directed by Esmayeel Shroff. The songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and R D Burman was the music director.

It told the story of Vijay (Dharmendra) who is bringing up his son and daughter with the help of a nanny (Lalitha Pawar) after the death of his wife. But the children miss a mother’s presence and so with the help of their nanny find a mother for themselves and wife for their father. They pack the two off to a honeymoon. On their way back, the father is killed now the new mother is unable to break the news to the kids. But she is lucky to find a person who looks exactly like Vijay only he is a tough goon. The rest of the movie is full of the twists and turns that are regular fare in Bollywood movies.

This movie came 10 years after the Dharam- Rekha blockbuster “Kahaani Kismat Ki”. The ordinary looking Rekha of KKK had undergone a transformation and learnt the art of looking gorgeous. Possibly she had taken a few tips from various quarters on how to present herself. The transformation was slow as can be seen in her movies that released post 1976 when she stopped being a gawky teenager and entered her 20s. Today’s song seems to be a question that she is putting to the audience in the guise of asking her hero. “Kaisi lag rahi hoon main?” If you ask me her eternal fan she was gorgeous then and gorgeous now even when she is 60+.

Wishing her on her birthday today (10 october 2018).

Hullo all in Atuldom

Saw a good clean movie with a straight forward story today. The story was almost as if inspired from the life of Valmiki.

Let me begin at the beginning. As I was writing my previous post on Hrishikesh Mukherjee I went through the filmography and saw that I had missed out seeing Sabse Bada Sukh; Arjun Pandit; Naukri; Achcha Bura; Naamumkin (of the 70s and 80s) and a few from the earlier decades. So, I decided since I have the time I shall see one today. But before that I was looking for songs where Sachin Dev Burman and Majrooh Sultanpuri had collaborated and was also hoping that all the songs of this duo had not bee posted. And sure enough all the extremely popular albums – Paying Guest, Solva Saal, Lajwanti, Nau Do Gyarah, Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi etc- that the two have worked together on have made their appearance on the blog. So that left me with the 70s to put under the search engine (because post 31st October 1975 SD Burman was not there). The 70s have given us a few gems from this duo- Phagun, Abhimaan, Sagina, Arjun Pandit etc. and on running through “the list of songs moviewise and checking up the status of these movies I found we have one song posted from Arjun Pandit, all songs of Abhimaan, Phagun (3 out of 6) Sagina (all songs posted). That left only Arjun Pandit for my use. Then I checked up number of songs in the movie and one out of three are posted.

Bingo! Here is the next song. I sat through the uploaded version of the movie on YouTube – the actual movie might have been longer as the YouTube version had only two songs, so maybe some parts of the movie too, may have got edited on the way to the cyberworld. Was impressed by the star cast. More positive feelings when I saw the introduction of Bindu in the movie. And the good feeling didn’t diminish through the movie. Nothing could go wrong with the movie- after all Hrishikesh Mukherjee was the director, dialogues were by Gulzar, central character was played by Sanjeev Kumar. The rest of the cast were also good actors, even debutant actress Srividya (from the South Indian film industry).

A small introduction to Srividya. She was born in 1953 to the Carnatic classical singer M L Vasanthakumari and Tamil film comedian Krishnamurthy. She made her acting debut at a very young age as the family had financial problems as her father had to stop acting due to some illness. She was successful in all the four South Indian language cinemas. She was also an expert classical vocalist and had done playback singing in a few south movies. Her filmography says she has worked in 5 Bollywood movies and that “Jaise Ko Taisa” was her first Hindi movie. But the title card of “Arjun Pandit” says introducing “Srividya”. {Need experts to clarify this}.

Today’s song shows Srividya getting ready to receive her friend and Saajan. Very simple sweet lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri and simple orchestration by SD Burman. Only two singers were used in the movie- Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. The Kishore Kumar song from this movie was posted on October 1, 2013 on the occasion of the lyricist and music director’s birthdate. {do we still have doubts about the birthdate of S D Burman as is mentioned by Bluefire in the comments to this posthttps://atulsongaday.me/2013/10/01/dil-mera-udaa-jaaye}

Oh, I just realized I have to explain about the Valmiki- inspiration angle to this movie. We have Sanjeev Kumar playing a henchman to the local Zamidaar (Rajan Haksar) who is dreaded by everyone in the village including his own daughter. Enter Ashok Kumar, as the doctor in the local village health centre and also a friend of the zamindar. His calm and loving nature inspires Sanjeev Kumar (Arjun Sardaar) to turn a new leaf, educate himself and make his daughter be comfortable when he is around. He goes on from being an illiterate strongman to a compassionate compounder to the doctor and finally also ends up looking after the family of the doctor as a responsible elder and family member would. So that then is the Valmiki part.

Song – Bolo Preetam, Kya Boli Thee Main Aage Re (Arjun Pandit) (1976) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – SD Burman

Lyrics

Blog Day : 3727 Post No. : 14666

Today, October 1st is the birth anniversary of two iconic personalities of Hindi film music. Both started their career in Hindi film industry in Bombay (Mumbai) in 1946 – one as a music director and the other as a lyricist. Yes, it is Sachin Dev Burman’s 112th birth anniversary and Majrooh Sultanpuri’s 99th birth anniversary. Both have been my favourites amongst the music directors and lyricists of the golden era of Hindi film music. Both seem to have been made for each other. SD Burman was one of the earliest pioneers in introducing the concept of ‘tune first lyrics later’ in Hindi film music while Majrooh Sultanpuri was master in writing lyrics to the tune.

I found both of them to be non-conformists in their respective fields.  SD Burman’s compositions did not leave trails to identify them as SD Burman type of music. In my younger days, it was not easy for me to identify the songs composed by SD Burman. Had I not known in advance, I would have difficulties in knowing that songs of ‘Baazi’ (1951), ’Pyaasa’ (1957) and  ‘Nau Do Gyarah’ (1957) were composed by the same music director. Majrooh Sultanpuri on the other hand wrote lyrics of varied moods and of all genres with ease. Another common factor between these two stalwarts was that both were called as ‘old man with young heart’. If SD Burman could composed Roop Tera Mastaana at the age of 64, Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote lyrics for Raat Shabnami Bheegi Chaandni at the age of 77.

Despite both SD Burman and Majrooh Sultanpuri starting their filmy career in 1946, it took about 11 years for both of them to work together in Navketan’s  ‘Nau Do Gyaarah’ (1957), though the other collaboration, ‘Paying Guest’ (1957) was released first. The main reason was that SD Burman was already working with Sahir Ludhianvi since 1951. It was only when SD Burman stopped engaging Sahir after ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) that he found Majrooh Sultanpuri as a suitable lyricist partner. From 1957 till SD Burman’s death in October 1975, both of them worked together in 20 films composing 137 songs.

I have already written about Majrooh Sultanpuri last year while covering the song Nanha Mora Doley Mori Anganiaa. So in this article, I propose to discuss only the musical career of SD Burman.

Sachin Da (1/10/1906 – 31/10/1975) was born in Comilla, a part of Tripura at that time (now in Bangladesh). He belonged to Tripura’s royal family in which his father, Nabadwip Chandra Dev Burman, was the next in line to Tripura Royalty. However, due to some palace machinations, Nabadwip Burman was denied his right as the next king of Tripura because of which he along with his family shifted to Comilla. SD Burman’s childhood years in Comilla became his training ground for music as he became enthralled by the folk music of what was then known as East Bengal.

After graduation from a Comilla college, SD Burman enrolled for Master’s degree in English in the University of Calcutta in 1924. However, he soon gave up his studies to become the disciple of Krishna Chandra Dey (KC Dey). Later, he continued his musical training under Ustad Badal Khan and Pandit Bhishamdev Chatopadhyay.  The royal family of Tripura were the connoisseurs of Hindustani classical music. They resented SD Burman’s indulgence in singing and recording folk songs for earning as it was below dignity for a royal member of family to earn from the music. They also felt that folk songs were not meant for royalty as they were sung by the lower strata of the society. Because of this, SD Burman did not get the traditional royal welcome when he visited Agrtala after his marriage with Meera in 1938.

In 1932, SD Burman left Tripura for Calcutta (Kolkata) for pursuing his interest in music. In the same year, he approached HMV for his first recording of a non-filmy Bengali song. However, he failed in the audition test. Luckily for him, Hindustan Musical Products (Hindustan Records) offered to record his first gramophone song. The song became a major success for Hindustan Records. During 1932-1946, SD Burman recorded over 100 non-films, mostly Bengali and some filmy Bengali songs most of which became commercially successful.

Despite success as a singer in non-film songs, SD Burman had to face disappointment in 1933 when a song sung by him in the film ‘Yahudi Ki Ladki’ (1933) was deleted and was recorded afresh in the voice of Pahadi Sanyal due to the internal politics of New Theatre. In 1935, SD Burman got an opportunity to do a minor role of a beggar in Madhu Bose’s film ‘Selima’ (1935) in which he was to sing a song. At first, SD Burman refused telling that he would be ostracised from the Tripura royal family if they came to know that he was working in a film. However, Madhu Bose assured him that no one would recognise him in his make-up of a beggar with beard and moustache. So this became SD Burman’s first film song as an actor-singer.

Sometime in 1942, SD Burman got an offer from Chandulal Shah to join Ranjit Movietone as music director. The offer was declined as he did not relish the idea of leaving Kolkata. In the next two years, he found that he was not able  to get enough opportunity to compose music for Bangla films as all important banners had their own music directors in their pay rolls. These music directors would offer him to sing as a playback singer which he would not agree as his wish was to become a music director. At this juncture, he took a decision that he would not sing for any other music directors and he would sing his own compositions for films not as a playback singer but as background singer. He maintained that stand consistently after he became a part of the Bombay (Mumbai) film industry in 1946.

In early 1940s, Bengal was reeling under the worst famine. The film industry was adversely affected. There was an exodus from Kolkata to Mumbai film industry for a different reason. SD Burman knew that despite his liking for Kolkata, he had to move to Mumbai to be able to achieve his dream of becoming a music director. In October 1944, SD Burman along with his family landed in Mumbai on the invitation from Rai Bahadur Chunnilal and Sashadhar Mukherjee who had formed Filmistan with Ashok Kumar, Gyan Mukherjee and other technicians, a breakaway group from Bombay Talkies.  Burman joined Filmistan as music director.

In Mumbai, SD Burman’s greatest handicap was his inability to fully understand Hindi, leave aside Urdu.  This handicap willy-nilly made him the pioneering in ‘tune first lyrics later’ concept in Hindi film song compositions. It is said that in his first two films with Filmistan, C Ramchandra helped SD Burman in music arrangements. I guess, as a newcomer, it was difficult for him to arrange musicians and communicate with them.

His first film as a music director was ‘Shikaari’ (1946) followed by ‘Aath Din’ (1946), both produced under the banner of Filmistan.  The music of ‘Shikari’ (1946) did not create much interest in the common public though studio hands appreciated newness in his music compositions. However, songs of ‘Aath Din’ (1946) especially two songs sung by SD Burman and Pehle Na Samjhaa Pyaar Tha by Ameerbai Karnataki became popular and made him a different class of music director well-versed with the then East Bengal folk music.

SD Burman was not satisfied with his music in these two films as he did not find anyone in the streets singing his songs. On the contrary, he found his servant always humming the songs from ‘Rattan’ (1944). He felt that unless his songs became popular on the streets, his presence as a music director would never be felt in Bombay film industry.

In the meanwhile, Sashadhar Mukherjee allowed him to take up the music direction in the films outside Filmistan. In 1947, he did two films outside Filmistan – ‘Chitor Vijay’ (1947) and ‘Dil Ki Rani’ (1947) both having Raj Kapoor and Madhubala as lead pairs. Neither the films fared well on the box office front nor did the songs become popular. The only point of interest in ‘Dil Ki Rani’ (1947) was that SD Burman made Raj Kapoor to sing in his own voice a song, O Duniya Ke Rehne Waalo Bolo Kahaan Gaya Chitchor.

Filmistan entrusted SD Burman with the music direction of ‘Do Bhai’ (1947). Sashadhar Mukherjee was a hard task master who rarely got satisfied with the tunes SD Burman composed for this film. Fed up with the constant rejections of tunes by Sashadhar Mukherjee, one day, SD Burman decided to have a show down with his boss. Probably after that he would think of leaving Filmistan and go back to Kolkata. To his surprise, Sashadhar Mukherjee at once approved the first tune he played on the harmonium and asked him record the song at the earliest. The song was Mera Sundar Sapna Beet Gaya sung by Geeta Roy (later Dutt). This song made Geeta Roy a star playback singer overnight. The film was a box office success. For the first time, SD Burman heard his servant humming this song which made him very happy. In 1948, he composed songs from ‘Vidya’ (1948). It was his first film with Dev Anand and Suraiya. The film did not fare well on the box office but one song  Laayi Khushi Ki Duniya, picturised on Dev Anand and Suraiya, became very popular.

Filmistan’s ‘Shabnam’ (1949) can be regarded as SD Burman’s first real successful film as a music director as all the songs of the films became very popular. For SD Burman, it was one of his most satisfying period of his musical career as he found the songs of ‘Shabnam’ being heard on the street quite often. He even heard the labourers at Bandra Railway Station, singing one of the songs from this film in tandem with their track maintenance work.

In 1950s, SD Burman did not have much success as a music director. ‘Afsar’ (1950) was his first film for Navketan – a film production company started by Chetan Anand and Dev Anand. The film did not fare well at the box office although two songs – Naina Deewaane Ek Nahin Maane and Man Mor Huaa Matwaala became popular. ‘Pyaar’ (1950) also did not have a great run. SD Burman was now depressed that even after 5 years of his stint as a music director in Bombay film industry, he has not established himself as a successful music director. With this thought in mind, he decided to leave Mumbai and return to Kolkata.

At that time, Ashok Kumar was reviving Bombay Talkies by producing ‘Mashaal’ (1950) for which SD Burman was entrusted with the music direction. His leaving at a crucial juncture would have affected the film. After much persuasion by Ashok Kumar, SD Burman stayed back to complete the music direction of the film with a condition that after the completion of his work, he would return to Kolkata.

It so happened that ‘Mashaal’ (1950) became a box office hit film. Almost all the songs of the film became very popular. But it was Manna Dey’s song,  Upar Gagan Vishaal which drew attention of the common folk. With this song, Manna Dey seemed have announced that he had, at last, arrived in the world of Hindi film music. Manna Dey had worked as an Assistant Music Director for SD Burman but he got his first chance to sing under his baton only in ‘Mashaal’ (1950).

With the success of ‘Mashaal’ (1950), producers lined up for signing SD Burman for their films which included ‘Bahaar’ (1951), ‘Buzdil’ (1951), ‘Ek Nazar’ (1951), ‘Naujawaan’ (1951) and ‘Sazaa’ (1951). All these films had very popular songs some of which are still remembered today like Sainya Dil Mein Aana Re, Jhan Jhan Jhan Jhan Paayal Baaje, Thandi Hawaayen Lehra Ke Aayen and Tum Na Jaane Kis Jahaan Mein Kho Gaye.

But one film SD Burman  did in 1951 gave a tremendous boost to his career as a music director – it was Navketan’s ‘Baazi’ (1951). It was Guru Dutt’s first directorial venture. SD Burman’s musical treatment in this film was quite a contrast to what he had so far churned out. There were no Bengali traces in the songs. Instead, he predominantly used western and Punjabi beats. In fact, he turned Sahir Ludhinavi’s philosophical ghazal, Tadbeer Se Bigdi Huyi Taqdeer Banaa Le  into a seductive club song. All the songs of ‘Baazi’ (1951) became super hits. The success of ‘Baazi’ (1951) made SD Burman almost a permanent fixture with Navketan Banner until ‘Chhupa Rustom’ (1973). By now, he had dropped the idea of shifting to Kolkata.

The musical success of ‘Baazi’ (1951) created a successful pair of Sahir Ludhianvi and SD Burman. During 1951-57, both of them created 138 songs in 18 films. Unfortunately, due to clash of egos, they did not work together after ‘Pyaasa’ (1957).

I will not go into further details of his successful films as they are in large numbers. But there are a few films which I consider as classic insofar as SD Burman’s music is concerned. They are ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954), ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), ‘Nau Do Gyaarah’ (1957), ‘Paying Guest’ (1957), ‘Kaala Paani’ (1958), ‘Sujata’ (1959), ‘Kaala Baazar’ (1960), ‘Bandini’ (1963) ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne’ (1963), ‘Guide’ (1965), ‘Aradhana’ (1969), ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970), ‘Sharmilee’ (1971), ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ (1971), and ‘Abhimaan’ (1973). But within these films, there were high points in SD Burman’s musical career – ‘Baazi’ (1951), ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), ‘Guide’ (1965), ‘Aradhana’ (1969) and ‘Abhimaan’ (1973).

During 1946 until his death in October 31, 1975 SD Burman composed music for 90 films (including one unreleased film) comprising 673 songs (666 songs if I exclude 7 songs from the unreleased film). This gives an annual average of 3 films. According to those who had closely worked with SD Burman, he would consider him to be ‘busy’ if he had two films on hand. He considered himself ‘very busy’ if he had 3 films on hand. He would not take any more musical assignments until he completed one of the three films on hand. So the annual average of 3 films are within the parameter he set for himself.

It was during the recording the song, Badi Sooni Sooni Hai Zindagi Ye Zindagi  from ‘Mili’ (1975) that SD Burman got paralytic attack and was shifted to Bombay Hospital. Later, RD Burman completed the recording of the song. What an irony! When Kishore Kumar was singing this song for recording, his mentor was in the hospital in deep coma. SD Burman remained in coma for the next 5 months until his end came on October 31, 1975.

Since the article has already become very lengthy, I propose to write a second part of the article covering some other aspects of SD Burman’s Hindi film music on his Remembrance Day on October 31, 2018. There are hundreds of anecdotes in the life of SD Burman – some known and some unknown to me – which makes his musical journey very interesting. While Gulzar called him ‘Prince of Music’, Pandit Hari Prasad Charasia referred him as ‘Sangeet Sant’ (Saint of Music). Kersi Lord, who worked with SD Burman as a drummer and later as an accordionist for a very long time, called him ‘an old man with a young heart’ insofar as his music was concerned. Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, the santoor player called SD Burman as a wonderful person with child-like innocence.

I will end this article with a statement that SD Burman was a music director who remained at the zenith of his musical career in Hindi film industry since the success of ‘Baazi’ (1951) until his death on October 31, 1975. Even 5 year hiatus with Lata Mangeshkar (1957-62) did not affect his musical career. Some of the films for which SD Burman composed music may have failed at the box office but his music did not fail.

On the occasion of 112th birth anniversary of SD Burman and 99th birth anniversary of Majrooh Sultanpuri, I present one of their creations from ‘Sitaaron Se Aage’ (1958). The film was produced by VL Narasu, a coffee plantation magnate from the South India. The film starred Ashok Kumar, Vyjayantimala, Jagdish Sethi, Johny Walker, Shammi, Iftekhar, Raja Sulochana, Leela Mishra, Manmohan Krishna etc.

The film seems to have jinxed from the very beginning. Gyan Mukherjee was originally assigned to direct the film. He had even completed musical sitting with SD Burman. The film went into shooting floor in 1956. However, Gyan Mukherjee fell ill and was diagnosed with brain tumour. He was also afflicted by Parkinson’s disease. He passed away in November 1956. Ashok Kumar had to rope in Satyen Bose to direct the film (As revealed by late Sachin Bhowmick and quoted in ‘SD Burman – The Prince Musician’ – Anirudh Bhattacharjee & Balaji Vittal (2018).

During the making of the film, SD Burman got into tiff with Lata Mangeshkar on the issue of re-recording of the song, Sainya Kaise Dhaaroon Dheer as he wished to record the song afresh with some changes in the tune. Since Lata was leaving for a foreign trip, she could not give him the date, nor she could commit to give a priority date on her return from the trip. This enraged SD Burman to such an extent that he stopped engaging Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer for the next 5 years. He got the above-mentioned song recorded in the voice of Asha Bhonsle. But she could not render the song the way S D Burman wanted. So he retained the originally recorded Lata version for the film. The remaining songs which were to be sung by Lata in the films were rendered by Asha Bhonsle (3) and Geeta Dutt (1).

After about 8 years from this incidence, SD Burman got his original wish fulfilled. Lata Mangeshkar recorded a song based on the tune of the song referred to above. The result was the culmination of a new song for the film ‘Guide’ (1965). The song was Mo Se Chhal Kiye Jaaye Dekho Sainya Beimaan. Incidentally, as I checked from the credit titles, Hiralal was one of the choreographers for both ‘Sitaaron Se Aage’ (1958) and ‘Guide’ (1965).

‘Sitaaron se Aage’ (1958) got delayed and finally released sometime in early 1958. The film was a musical extravaganza with Vyjayantimala performing a number of semi-classical dances in the film. A feature of the songs in this film was that  SD Burman used Western scores in a couple of songs like Chanda Ki Chaandni Ka Jaadoo and Mehfil Mein Aaaye Wo Aaj Dheere Se that sounded like waltz music.

So far 7 songs (out of 9 including one multiple version song) from this film have been covered in the Blog. I present the 8th song – ‘Aa Khilte Hain Gul, O Mere Bulbul’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song was written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and picturised on Vyjayantimala as a dance song. The song is not only melodious but rhythmic as well.

[Author’s Note: Some of the information on SD Burman’s early life and early musical career has been sourced from ‘SD Burman – The World of His Music’ by Khagesh Dev Burman (translated from Bengali by SK Ray Chaudhuri), 2013.]

“Ham Matwaale Naujawaan” (1961) was directed by L R Asthana for Rover Films Production, Bombay. The movie had Shekhar, Sayeeda Khan, Jeevan, Agha, Chaman Puri etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Five songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the sixth song from this movie. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Only the audio of this song is available and so it is difficult to guess how and on whom this song is picturised. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this matter.

दिल तोड़ने वाले, तुझे दिल ढूंढ रहा है
आवाज़ दे तू कौन सी नगरी में छुपा है

But maybe not. जिस नगरी में तुम चले गए हो, वहाँ से आवाज़ इधर नहीं आ सकती। The only sound that remains is the recordings available,

– – – –

Now this song today has a very interesting peculiarity, that was brought to our group’s notice by Bakshish Singh ji. I will come that shortly.

Today’s song, another vintage Chitragupt creation, which has remained kind of obscure and unfamiliar to the listening public. In its time, the music of this film was quite popular on the radio, especially the Mukesh song “Babam Babam Bam Bam Lehri” and the Kamal Barot song “Suna Hai Jabse Mausam Hai Pyaar Ke Kaabil”. The song presented in this post was also heard on the radio, but now it has been unheard for a long time.

Ramu Dada is a film by Sheikh Mukhtar. It is directed by Adarsh for the banner of Adarshlok, Bombay. The main star cast is listed as Sheikh Mukhtar, Jaimala, Prince Saleem, Honey Irani, Sapru, Nilofer, Rajan Haksar, Jagdish Shrivastav and Chand Usmani etc. In this, the name Prince Saleem is the same person as Salim Khan that we are more familiar with – part of the Salim-Javed team of story writers (‘Sholay’ (1975) et al.), father of actor Salman Khan.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs of this film. Three of these are already showcased on our blog. This post brings on board the fourth song of this film. All the songs are penned by Majrooh Sb and the music is composed by Chitragupt. In this song, Rafi Sb’s voice is accompanied by the voice of Lata ji. On screen, this song is performed by Salim Khan and Jaimala.

Now coming to the interesting peculiarity of this song. This song is one of those that has a slight variation in between the audio and video versions; or in other words, in between the 78 rpm recording and the recording actually filmed. Readers will recall that I discussed another such song earlier in the year – “Rangeen Bahaaron Se Hai Gulzaar China Town” from the 1962 film ‘Chinatown’. This song has a similar peculiarity. The verses noted in the lyrics section below are based on the audio version of this song, taken from the 78 rpm record. That version also supplies the title line for this post, and that is because the Geet Kosh takes this as the original wording for listing. The lines of the mukhda of this song has been modified in the video version.

The mukhda in the audio version is worded as,

Male Voice:
daal bhi de zulfon ki chhaaon
zaalima dhoop chadhi jaaye
Female Voice:
lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye

In the video version filmed, the mukhda is worded as

Male Voice:
daal bhi de palkon ki chhaaon
zaalima dhoop chadhi jaaye
Female Voice:
lo na sanam palkon ka naam
preet mein reet badhi jaaye

Please listen to the mukhda rendition in the two versions. When we listen to the audio version, it sounds very normal and correct, nothing is amiss. However, when we listen to the video version, the lines of the mukhda rendition sound somewhat altered and out of sync with the music. The most likely explanation is that these lines have been overlaid on to an earlier version of this song. Meaning that the song was filmed with the version that is present on the 78 rpm records. Then for some reason (unknown at this time), the mukhda lines were re-recorded with the sight variation in words, and then this recording was carefully dubbed onto the existing celluloid reels. However, the dubbing is not perfect. We can clearly make out a slight variation in the pace of music for these lines. And careful examination will also show that the lip sync for the mukhda lines is out of sync.

Having established this variation, however I have not been able to locate any information as to why this change was made, why was this change was so essential and necessary. I request friends and readers to add more information regarding the why of this change.

Meanwhile, check out these variant versions of the song.

Song – Daal Bhi De Zulfon Ki Chhaon  (Ramu Dada) (1961) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics (based on the audio version)

daal bhi de zulfon ki chhaaon

lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye
daal bhi de zulfon ki chhaaon

kaahe tera
jalta dil hai bechara
aata nahin
aanchal haath tumhaara
ye rangeen ghata

ye kya hua
uljhi chaal tumhaari
dekho na ji
latt phir bikhri hamaari
na kyun jaaye bikhar
ham se nazar
ladti jaaye
ke daal bhi de zulfon ki chhaaon
zaalima dhoop chadhi jaaye
lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye

duniya kahe

ke lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye
daal bhi de zulfon ki chhaaon
zaalima dhoop chadhi jaaye
lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye

In 1989, a new actor made his debut as a hero and that movie had a song of fond hope- papa kehte hain bada naam karega. That movie became a hit and the debutant actor, Aamir Khan really made his father proud. With passage of time, Aamir Khan has grown from strength to strength and he has in fact made his papa proud beyond his wildesh imagination.

That proud father was Tahir Hussain (19 September 1938 – 2 February 2010) whose 80th birth anniversary falls today. Tahir Hussain was a leading movie maker of his time and he was the younger brother of legendary Nasir Hussain.

Both brothers made movies that provided wholesale entertainment to the moviegoers. Extremely popular music used to be the hallmark of these movies. Just recall some of the movies that Tahir Hussain produced- “Caravan”(1971), “Anamika”(1973), “Madhosh”(1974), “Zakhmee”(1975), “Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke”(1993) etc.

He was also a director, writer, actor etc in some of his, or his brother’s movies.

On tis occasion, here is a song from “Madhosh”(1974), this movie, a relatively lesser known movie, had Mahendra Sandhu, Reena Roy, Jay Shree T, Rakesh Roshan, Johny Walker, Helen, Ravindra Kapoor, Aamir Khan (then a child actor), Dilip Dhawan, Faisal Khan, Kiran Kumar etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered.

This song, the third from the movie to appear in the blog is a duet. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised on Reena Roy and Mahendra Sandhu. The audio quality in the picturised value is poor and fails to do justice to the song. So I have provided the audio link which preserves the outstanding quality of this song, which is an archtypical R D Burman composition of those days. It is songs like this that used to rule the airwaves in India those days !

Audio

Song-Kasam khaao tum ek baar(Madhosh)(1974) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

kasam khaao tum ek baar
mere yaar

kahin le ke mera pyaar

kasam khata hai mera pyar mere yaar mere dildaar

Blog Day : 3652 Post No. : 14505

Today is the death anniversary of one of India’s biggest superstars, Rajesh Khanna, affectionately referred to as Kaka. He passed away on the 18th of July 2012. I remember being shocked to hear of his death – and even wrote an emotional post on my blog on the occasion. Although I did know that he had been suffering from cancer, the news hit me hard. Today, it is already 6 years since his death. How time flies!

Maybe it’s a reflection of the person he was, but it seems to me that any conversation about Kaka invariably goes beyond his films, and delves into his personal life and relationships. His, admittedly none too positive, image seems to take over – at the cost of discussion about his films. This is unfortunate – but, to some extent, Kaka probably brought this on himself.

We all know he let success go to his head – and paid a heavy price for it. Like I’ve said before, maybe that was one of his roles here on this earth. To NOT be a role model, to be someone that can be held up as an example by parents to children of how NOT to let success get to your head. Anyway, later in life, Kaka did admit to the mistakes he’d made – and, on this Remembrance Day, I think I’d like to not talk about his mistakes. I’ve discussed them at length in previous posts – I don’t want to repeat myself.

Today, as I remember him, all I want to do is to thank him for the performances he gave me when I was just a young boy, growing up in the late 60s / early 70s. I’m going to pause just a bit here to remember those performances.

There were many – his filmography of that period and his success rate would put any other actor in the shade. Not even the big 3 (Dilip, Raj Kapoor and Dev Anand) who came before him could deliver that many hits in that short a time frame. Or the biggie who followed right after. But personally I couldn’t care less about the box-office success of those films. I was just a young boy – what did I know about the box-office? All I knew was, there was this “hero” on screen who, through his smile, or tilt of the head, or “guru” kurta, or dialogue delivery had me mesmerized in film after film, singing one blissful song after another (at that time I didn’t know about playback).

I didn’t always understand the storyline, or even all the dialogues, but everytime he would be romancing  the heroine, whether it was Sharmila or Mumtaz or Tanuja or Hema or another, it felt like all was just perfect with the world. It wasn’t as if other heroes didn’t have romantic scenes with the heroines, but somehow it seemed different in Kaka films. Later, when I thought about this, I felt it was possibly because romance was usually intrinsic to Kaka films. It formed part of the main plot itself. Whereas for others, it was an important element no doubt, but the storyline often had a crime-related plot – like smuggling.  Note that wherever romance IS the plot, the film seems very Kaka-like. For example, ‘Aa Gale Lag Ja’ (1973) could very well have been a Kaka film, though it had Shashi Kapoor in the main lead.

Of course, it was not always a happy ending. Kaka would often die in the film, breaking my heart.  This only made the film a bigger hit, so storylines were devised accordingly.

I thoroughly enjoyed those films – have fond memories of ‘Aradhana’, ‘Aan Milo Sajna’, ‘Kati Patang’, ‘Dushman’, ‘Apna Desh’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Mere Jeevan Saathi’, and so many others. Whether it was “Mere Sapnon Ki Rani”, “Yahaan Wahaan Saare”, “Ye Shaam Mastaani”, “Waada Tera Waada”, “Rona Kabhi Nahin Rona”, “Dilbar Jaani”, “O Mere Dil Ke Chain” or any of his numerous hits of the time, I knew them all by heart – all stanzas. We’d often sing these songs amongst friends.

At that time I had no idea about Kaka beyond his screen presence. Ignorance was truly bliss.

Then things began changing.

Suddenly he didn’t seem to have the same magic anymore. I tend to associate this with his “long hair” phase but, to be fair to him, that was just the fashion of the time. Hamming seemed to have set in – even the films seemed to lack that romantic feel about them. The last couple of movies I remember of that era that I saw, and could accept, were ‘Aap Ki Kasam’ (1974) and ‘Prem Kahaani’ (1975).

Mehbooba (1976) was probably the first big shock for me. It was highly hyped at the time – what with the two biggest names, Kaka and Hema, as the lead actors. Not to mention RD Burman’s music. I remember the film being a big flop. Later I read that the decline started even earlier but for me, at that age, Mehbooba was the marker.

That was a terrible period for him. Flop after flop. I clearly remember ‘Bundalbaaz’, ‘Chalta Purza’, ‘Aashiq Hoon Baharon Ka’, even BR Chopra’s ‘Karm’ (another much-awaited film) – all failed. But there were more.

Oh, one thing. I said I didn’t know about box-office but there was one indicator for me. I used to travel by school bus to school, 30 km away. En-route there was a film theatre. From the bus, we could see which film was running. That gave us a pretty good idea of hit or flop. I remember ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat’ running for many weeks, whereas ‘Bundalbaaz’ and ‘Chalta Purza’ just came and went.

After watching ‘Aashiq Hoon Baharon Ka’, I really couldn’t take it anymore. What had happened to my “Ye Shaam Mastaani” Rajesh Khanna? How had he morphed into this “I am in love, you are in love, he is in love, she is in love” Rajesh Khanna? I stopped seeing his movies. I couldn’t bear to.

Later, in the mid-80s, I did watch a few – but only because they were on Doordarshan. ‘Thodisi Bewafai’ (1980), ‘Avtaar’ (1983) and ‘Aakhir Kyon’ (1985). I quite liked them. But only these.

For the next 25 years, I stayed away from Kaka films that I had not watched. Sure, I watched the old ones to relive their magic. But none of his post-1977 films. Only a few years ago, I mustered the courage to watch this category. I think it had to do with his death. Maybe I felt I was doing him grave injustice by avoiding these films. After all, he must have worked just as hard in them, as in his early films. So why not at least give them a shot? For Kaka’s sake.

I started with the more successful ones – at least those with popular songs. Like ‘Agar Tum Na Hote’ (1983), ‘Kudrat’ (1981), ‘Rajput’ (1982). I kept my expectations very low. I quite liked all these films. And I was quite impressed by Kaka too. I don’t recall seeing much of the hamming  that I had dreaded. Sure they were very different from his early 1970s films – but that’s to be expected.

Recently I got into the mood again – and did a Kaka binge. I watched ‘Amrit’ (1986), ‘Dhanwaan’ (1981), ‘Dard’ (1981), ‘Aanchal’ (1980), ‘Janta Hawaldar’ (1979) and ‘Amar Deep’ (1979), all within the last month. As usual, keeping expectations low. I liked some more than the others, of course. But what I realized is each of their story lines is very different from the rest. That also made me realize that Kaka’s movies often had that – different story lines. This, at a time in the late 70s or in the 80s, when usually you had formulaic dhishum-dhishum films, either as multi-starrers, or hero taking revenge on the villain.

I now plan to watch more Kaka films of the period. Even if they’re not good, that’s ok. I keep my expectations low – and I’m watching them for Kaka. His looks aren’t what they were in the early 1970s – but that only seems to make him all the more real for me. And, worst case, the film will probably have a reasonable story line.

Moving on to today’s song.

Now having watched all these Kaka films recently, and most of them not being much represented on the blog, I was somewhat spoilt for choice today. I could have picked at least half a dozen Kaka songs from these films alone – and I do plan to write up more from these films. But for today, I’ve chosen “Paise Ka Kaajal” from ‘Aanchal’ (1980).

Firstly, this song comes in the category of “ye gaana IS film mein hai?” for me. I’d heard it all those years ago but didn’t know which film it was from. Secondly, ‘Aanchal’ is not represented yet on the blog, so it makes its debut today. Thirdly, it is a song & dance – and I quite like song & dance. 🙂 What I particularly liked about this one, apart from the song itself, is Kaka’s style. Not that he was a great dancer, but his style here reminded me of the Kaka of the early 1970s, when he’d dance similarly opposite heroines of the time. 🙂

The film stars Kaka, Rekha, Raakhee, Amol Palekar and Prem Chopra. It’s a village-based story, where Kaka and Amol Palekar are brothers, with Raakhee married to Amol Palekar. Since Kaka is her husband’s younger brother, Raakhee treats him with great affection. Kaka too has highest regard for his bhabhi. Prem Chopra, who has a score to settle with Amol Palekar, plays mischief, creating misunderstanding in his mind about the relationship between Raakhee and Kaka. Also, doing the same to Rekha, who is in love with Kaka.

To be honest, the film picks up only in the second half – the first half is rather slow. But maybe it is a build-up to show the relationships between the characters. I was rather keen for the film to get on with the plot. 🙂

In any case, do listen to this fairly catchy tune composed by RD Burman.  Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle. As usual, the lyrics have been provided to me by Avinash ji. He is always very helpful in this respect, sending me lyrics for any post I plan to write.

Not only this, he is a huge Kaka fan – a much bigger fan than I am. Avinash ji did tell me that he might not be able to write a post for Kaka on this occasion. So this is our joint tribute to Kaka, as we remember him fondly today.

Kaka, hope you are at peace, wherever you are. And thanks for all the memories.

Blog Day : 3631 Post No. : 14457

Today 27th June (27th June, 1939 – 4th Jan, 1994) is the 79th birth anniversary of Rahul Dev Burman, whom we fondly remember as ‘Pancham’.

On this occasion here is a song from the 1985 Movie ‘Sitamgar’. Th film was directed by Raj N Sippy for Bikramjeet Films International, Bombay and produced by Bikram Singh Dehal. It had Dharmendra, Parveen Babi, Rishi Kapoor, Poonam Dhillon, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Prem Chopra, Jagdish Raj, Gurbachan, Ranvir Raj, Azad, Tilak Mehta, Raj Kaul, Shamsuddin, Nath Kamle, Ved Akash, Ashok Gaekwad, Master Alankar and Baby Geeta. Narendra Nath, Sonia Shania and Sudhir make special appearance in this movie.

Ved Aakash and Pankaj Kharbanda were the Chief Assistant Directors of this movie. Ashok Gaekwad was the Associate Director for this movie. V.N. Mayekar was the editor while Sakharam Borse assisted him in editing. Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Mirza Brothers and dialogues were written by Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza. The movie was passed by the Censor Board on 08.03.1985.

This movie had six songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by RD Burman (Manohari, Babloo and Martin were assistants). Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

As the movie makes its debut on the blog today I can select only one song for today’s presentation. Going by the songs of this movie that I have already heard, I can say that some of them are very nice songs.

In 1985 the following movie with music composed by RD Burman were released,

  1. Rahi Badal Gaye
  2. Ram Tere Kitne Naam
  3. Hum Dono
  4. Ek Se Bhale Do
  5. Lava
  6. Zabardast
  7. Sitamgar
  8. Saagar
  9. Alag Alag
  10. Oonche Log
  11. Aawara Baap
  12. Arjun
  13. Hum Naujawan
  14. Shiva Kea Insaaf

From the above list one can easily understand that he was still there composing good music whereas it is said that he was passing through a lean phase and was overshadowed by other music directors during those years in the 1980s. Well, that is the subject for another post and so I am limiting my write-up for this presentation here only.

This movie also falls under one of my objective of ‘movie having the same title’. So far on the blog we have ‘Sitamgar’ from 1958 already launched earlier. As mentioned in HFGK Vol VI movie with same title was also released in 1934 & 1954, making it four times so where movies with same titles have been released. With today’s song, the film ‘Sitamgar’ of 1985 makes a debut on our blog.

Remembering Pancham Da today and his music let us move to the today’ song now. . .

 

Song – Hum Kitne Nadaan The Yaaro (Sitamgar) (1985) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – RD Burman

Lyrics

ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana
sach hai agar to ek mohabbat
jhooth hai baaki saara fasaana
ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

pad gaye jaise in aankhon pe
zulm ke nafrat ke parde
pad gaye jaise in aankhon pe
zulm ke nafrat ke parde
zindagi tera mujrim hoon main
ho sake to o maaf kar de
andhi raah ke andhe safar mein
beet gaya jeene ka zamaana
ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

ab ye mohabbat ka
ehsaan hai
ye jo thhodi jaan hai mujhme
ab ye mohabbat ka
ehsaan hai
ye jo thhodi jaan hai mujhme
aap hi main jiska qaatil hoon
zindaa wo insaan hain mujhme
ham kitne naadaan thhe yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana
sach hai agar to ek mohabbat
jhooth hai baaki saara fasaana
ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना

हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना
सच है अगर तो एक मोहब्बत
झूठ है बाकी सारा फ़साना
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना

पड़ गए जैसे इन आँखों पे
ज़ुल्म के नफरत के परदे
पड़ गए जैसे इन आँखों पे
ज़ुल्म के नफरत के परदे
ज़िन्दगी तेरा मुजरिम हूँ मैं
हो सके तो ओ माफ़ कर दे
अंधी राह के अंधे सफ़र में
बीत गया जीने का ज़माना
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना

अब ये मोहब्बत का
एहसान है
ये जो थोड़ी जान है मुझमे
अब ये मोहब्बत का
एहसान है
ये जो थोड़ी जान है मुझमे
आप ही मैं जिसका कातिल हूँ
ज़िंदा वो इंसान हैं मुझमे
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना
सच है अगर तो एक मोहब्बत
झूठ है बाकी सारा फ़साना
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे …
आज ये जाना …

Today (24 may 2018) is the 18th remembrance day of Majrooh Sultanpuri (1 October 1919 – 24 May 2000).

Majrooh Sultanpuri was active in Hindi movies from 1946 till he passed away in 2000. He had the longest knock of them all as far as lyricists were concerned. He was not slow and steady as one would expect, rather he was quite fast and steady. That way he was like a hare that never relaxed and maintained a furious pace throughout. While doing that, he maintained a very high quality throughout.

One great quality of people with long innings is that they are great man managers. Majrooh sultanpuri was no exception. He got along well with most colleagues, including even temperamental colleagues.

According to my calculations, Majrooh Sultanpuri penned 2168 lyrics in 328 movies right from “Shahjahaan”(1946) till “One Two Ka Four”(2001). This blog has 1040 of these songs. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the number one lyricist in the blog and he is followed by Rajinder Krishan, another “lambi race ka ghoda”.

The first two movies of Majrooh Sultanpuri were “Shahjahaan”(1946) and “Qeemat”(1946). Majrooh Sultanpuri penned 7 (out of 10) songs in “Shahjahaan”(1946) and penned all the nine songs of “Qeemat”(1946). Both these songs had music by Naushad. These two movies are already YIPPEED. so one can say that all the songs penned by Majrooh sultanpuri in his debut year are already covered in the blog.

The next Majrooh Sultanpuri movie was “Doli”(1947). “Doli” (1947) was directed by S K Ojha. The movie had Amar, Jayant, Madhuri, Pratima Devi, Shashikala, Sulochana Chatterji, Wasti, Sushil Kumar, Putli Bai, Nand Kishore, Chopra, Amir Ali etc in it.

There were nine songs in the movie that were penned by three lyricists,

Four songs from the movie have been discussed in the past.

Majrooh Sultanpuri had written the lyrics for four of these songs. Two songs penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri are among the songs covered in the blog.

As a tribute to Majrooh Sultanpuri, here is another song from the movie which is penned by him.

This is the fifth song from “Doli”(1947) to appear in the blog. This rare song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

PS-It appears that the song has another stanza that is missing from the song. Till a longer version of this rare song becomes available, we have to make do with the version which is available as of now.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Kis deepak ki dhun mein bechaara jalta hai patanga pyaara (Doli)(1947) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Lyrics

Kis deepak ki dhun mein bechaara
jalta hai patanga pyaara
Kis deepak ki dhun mein bechaara
jalta hai patanga pyaara
aa tujh ko behna
rasta dikhaaa den
ho o
raste mein laakhon
deepak jala den
aa tujh ko behna
rasta dikhaaa den
ho o
raste mein laakhon
deepak jala den
ye chaand taare
la kar bichha den
ye chaand taare
la kar bichha den
jaan gayi
jaan gayi
bhed saara aa aa
jalta hai patanga pyaara
jaan gayi
jaan gayi
bhed saara aa aa
jalta hai patanga pyaara
Kis deepak ki dhun mein bechaara
jalta hai patanga pyaara

iske siwa kuchh nahin mere bas mein
ho o
do chaar mein kya
keh doon main das mein
iske siwa kuchh nahin mere bas mein
ho o
do chaar mein kya
keh doon main das mein
behna waari
?? mein
behna waari
?? mein
dikhlaa doon main deepak tihaara
haay raam
dikhlaa doon main deepak tihaara aa aa
jalta hai patanga pyaara
